While I was at ALA, I got to attend a preview showing of Journey to the Center of the Earth. It opens today and I know several people who will be running off to the cinema to see it. It was so good and is getting good reviews. And I just love Brendan Fraser!! It is not the book itself but the book features prominently in it. It is a great sci fic story as well as a great survival story.

Today's podcast is for Leepike Ridge -- a great survival story. This is yet another nominee for New Hampshire Great Stone Face award. I am pretty sure it will be popular with the kids.


Tom and his mother have always lived near Leepike Ridge. He just never thought he'd end up underneath it. Tom uses a slab of foam to start a ride on a quiet stream. The water turns deadly and Tom is pulled underwater into a cavern underground. There is no light, no food and no way out, and Tom is trapped. How can he survive? How can he get out!
